Litratong Pinoy - Dalampasigan

Ito ay kuha mula sa Dalampasigan ng Panglao Island Nature Resort sa Bohol. Isa sa pinaka paborito kong larawan ang nasa itaas kung saan naglalakad ang aking asawa at anak sa dalampasigan. Napaka tahimik ng lugar, mahangin at malayo sa ingay ng Maynila.

Ang sumunod na larawan naman ay ang daan patungo sa isang maliit na "isla" sa nasabing resort. Napaka pino ng buhangin kaya ilang beses kami bumalik at naglakad dito.

For Kuya Joaqui

I dont want people to think that im only buying stuff for Babydoll. So that explains why I am broke now because of shopping.. :)

Here's Joaqui's latest loot that I received yesterday thru the ever dependable LBC :)

** Sassy Mam tumbler with small food pocket and Thermos Funtainer with Food Jar. These are all BPA- free :) **

** basketball jerseys courtesy of my mom and dad. **

He loves the Cars Tumbler and Food Jar. And when he saw the Red and white jersey he exclaimed, "basketball! I like mommy! " . Hmm marunong pumili !!!

at 6 months

Kicks here and there - It's getting frequent at night time , im telling you. Babydoll might be really awake . Sometimes , I can even feel slow movements , as if she's caressing my belly.. and you will see me with the "nagulat ako" move right after that. I can say that my tummy now is bigger than my 1st pregnancy. I just hope and pray that babydoll wont be too big , as im afraid to undergo a CS delivery.

Cravings - California Maki and Quickly still tops my list. We tried California Makis at Japanese fast foods like Tokyo2x , Rai Rai Ken , Tempura, Karate Kid and Teriyaki Boy (maki comparisons needs a separate post ) . Im too happy that Gelo is sooo supportive with my fave. Sometimes, I dont tell him at all to buy me maki.. then he would arrive home with one. He's too eager to try every Jap resto that he'll see on his way home. Though he's not into anything Jap too, he tried eating a few already :) He likes the Tempura Maki at Teriyaki Boy , and The Uncle Sams Maki at Tempura.

Quickly is my favorite drink. I need to drink 1 at the mall.. as in! I dont know the exact name of what im drinking. I would always tell the attendant what I like. So Its choco pudding + Taro Ice + choco syrup + extra choco pudding too :)

Physical Features - I certainly look better than my 1st pregnancy.. No big nose ( na mala red bell pepper, LOL) , no zits at my forehead , my skin looks better , no linea negra ( is that how you call it? The brown line at your tummy? I have a super dark one with Joaqui at 4 months! ), the only thing I really noticed is my bigger tummy.

I wonder how will i look like at 7 months .. I dont have my latest pic now.. im getting too lazy even with picture taking. Haha.

3 more months.. I just can't wait :)

my shoeless babydoll

I will call her Babydoll from now on :)

Yes. she's a doll in the making. with all the items im getting, para na kong may manika.. hihihi:) would you believe that in 2 weeks time, I haven't gotten her shoes yet?? I have 3 pieces in my cart now, but haven't bought anything yet.. take a look..

** Silver Peek-a-boo toe ballet flats **

** matte gold "driving" mocs **
** metallic pink Mary Janes by Pediped **

First two are from Old Navy at such a good price. The last one from Pediped is at $30 , and im having second thoughts on this (bigla daw ako nag kuripot) . I am just waiting for my mom to check the items at the store, and if she can't get it there, im getting it online of course :) 3- 6 months for the 1st 2 styles, and 6 - 12 months for the Pediped maybe.

Noticed the color of the shoes? Im a fan of metallic shoes, that's why:)

And I cant wait to get this..

This Trumpette Jenny Golf Socks (comes in 6 colors per box) is perfect for those times that baby can't wear shoes yet.

A baby outfit won't be complete without a perfect footwear to go with it:)

Getting colorful

After 2 years of getting Blue stuff for Joaquin .. I am now switching into something colorful for our princess..


** onesies in shades of lavender with dots, flowers, and stripes. **

** red, pink and white onesies **

** a girl gotta have pink! **

Got these at size 6 / 9 months . My mom bought all the newborn items last weekend already, and I'm telling you, OA pa sya kesa sa kin. As in!! wait til you see the pics. Niloloko na sya ng daddy ko sa mga nabili nya :) LOL.

Yeah !

** In his Eddie Bauer Denim Jumper **

That's not a pose from the little boy. He's watching TV that time, thats why you cant ask him to look at the camera.

We are saying goodbye to some of his shoes already, he's wearing 8 now. I feel sad because he loves this RL sneakers. He chooses his own shoes to wear, you know. And sometimes even if i ask him to wear some of his shoes when going out, he would always prefer this one. I am checking for some colors available at a bigger size. Then Im getting a multi - colored too for my little girl soon :)

A photo session soon ..

I am definitely getting the services of Ging Lorenzo.. I just hope that the rates are still updated. Got this last May :)

I'm just waiting for my tummy to get a little bigger. I cant wait to have this shoot with my boys!

I am thinking of the Lamesa EcoPark after hearing good feedbacks from my friends.. any other suggestions?

Last night.

I was doing some mental calculations of my earnings and expenses... staring blankly at the ceiling, talking to myself.. Then I suddenly talked to Gelo..

Peachy : Dami ko na pala na shopping for baby. Stop muna nga ako mag shopping.

Gelo : Talaga ? Mga ilang oras ka mag stop ?? (insert hilarious laughing face here!)

Grabe !!! he noticed it too ! And imagine, hours ko lang daw kaya tiisin ang shopping ! LOL ! I actually laughed when he commented and simply said.. " Sobra ka naman.. di ako ganun ." ( i na low , paawa tone. Baka sakaling maawa at bigyan ako ng cash pang shopping sa mall naman :)

*sigh* ang mga mister nga naman, akala sa mga misis puro shopping eh!! Tsk ! tsk ! Ang hirap ng work namin ha :)

Litratong Pinoy - Luntian

* Isang kakaibang bulaklak sa gitna ng mga luntiang dahon. Ito ay kuha mula sa aming pagbisita sa Bohol noong nakaraang taon. ( A unique flower in the midst of green leaves. This is a shot from our visit to Bohol last year ) **


My tummy it is.

It should be since I am 23 -24 weeks pregnant to date. Oh it just gets nearer! Im having mixed emotions actually and questions on motherhood is bugging me again. But as of now, I try to shooo them away , instead I think about other things , like shopping.. and when I say shopping, its not just for the lil princess , but for my two boys as well. Ayaw ko ng may jealousy , pati si Gelo, baka magselos na.

I can't wait to have my next ultrasound too.

Then I am planning to have a photo shoot with Ging Lorenzo. I already have her rates for the maternity session, im just thinking of a nice location. Maybe we can have that when im 7 - 8 months preggy.

I feel like a brand new mom :)

My First

.. and definitely not the last ..

Here's what i bought for our princess , the moment I went home after the ultrasound last Saturday. Ralph Lauren has a summer sale , with additional 25% off. Nothing in here is more than $20 :) hahaha.

That same night, after we went out for a dinner, I shopped at Old Navy and Gap :) Of course, everything I grabbed was on sale, plus additional 10% off !

Sunday, July 13, 2008


To our dear friends..

Thank You .

Sorry, I got too busy after hearing the news. We had 2 birthday dinners last Saturday and Sunday. But Gelo, Joaqui and I wasn't able to celebrate yet. Hopefully we can celebrate as a family this week too.

I will pick the 2 winners maybe tomorrow evening :)

Still Amazed ...

just had my ultrasound today at around 11 : 20 am !

Gelo and I are still ecstatic ! I wasn't able to eat much for lunch ! Pinilit ko na lang kumain at 2 pm:)

yes, we are having a baby girl!

We feel so happy the lil princess is doing great inside. We had a very nice view of her face:)

So this is how it feels to have a princess ... Goodness, I spent $60 already in online shopping in as little as almost 4 hours after hearing the news.. Bwahahah!

** Baby Shower - 7 mos preggy with Joaqui wearing an oriental top from Tutuban na pinilit kong mag kasya sa katawan ko , since its not for preggos.. look at my nose..distorted! Hahaha! buti di ganyan nose ko now. **

** almost 2 mos preggy at Shang Mactan last March in brown tank na once ko pa lang nasuot .. it wont fit me anymore **

** a little glitter in gray on my 3rd month **

** casual denim jumper with a red tank and flops.. 4 mos **

** just turned 5 mos ..*

I love being preggy because..

** i love all the attention im getting from my family! weee! Im being pampered especially during those hard times.

** i love the feeling of excitement it brings.. that's why I cant wait for saturday!

** i have a reason to buy new clothes.. but since this is my 2nd, Gelo knows my style already.. here's my line ..

Peachy : " Sigh. Wala na ko masuot ah.. bibili ko ng bago ha?! Paulit ulit na lang suot ko.. ayaw ko mag jeans "

Gelo (in semi deadma mode) : " Ayan ka na naman sa walang masuot. Tignan mo yung cabinet mo, yung mga damit mo dati.."

** I get to buy cute stuff for baby! I admit, this is one reason why I want to know the gender.LOL. During my recent YM conversation with my mom, she told me that my dad gave her a GO signal for baby shopping! Waah! Sana nasa CA din ako now!

** i love the feeling that someone with life is inside me. The movements and kicks can get really tough at times, but its a priceless feeling only a mom can experience.

5 months and counting

I still don't know the gender of my 2nd baby.. my schedule for ultrasound would be anytime this July, in time with my Blood Sugar test. I am excited (for the US ) and at the same time nervous for the results of the blood exam. I haven't been careful with my sweets intake lately and I am a bit worried that it might lead me to "not-so-good" results. I'm just praying hard for this :)

I wish I knew baby's gender by now. Why ? Because of some online sale going on at Old Navy and Gap . LOL. Babaw! I want to start on some shopping , you know!

I am feeling more movements now, usually during midnight, thus it keeps me wide awake at 11pm- 1 am. Sometimes, I would even have a biscuit before I go to bed. I crave for California Maki :) and I am a sleepy head still .. Thank heavens ! I am one lucky girl, I just don't get really fat at all. Here's my pic at The Boutique 2 weeks ago ..

Weekend Snaphots

It was a stormy weekend at Tagaytay when we celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary, but we had so much fun at the I Dream Room of The Boutique. The Churros con Chocolat was the perfect way to end the cold, stormy night. Look at the Little boy, enjoying his churros.
